Hyacinth Transplanting

Anonymous added on April 18, 2011 | Answered

I purchased a potted Hyacinth and it has finished blooming. Can the bulbs be transplanted outdoors if I dry them out first? I have had very good luck with planting purchased bulbs outdoors but have never tried transplanting one. Most information I have read says to discard the bulbs if they are potted due to forcing them to bloom.
